DWI (Driving While Impaired)
Although they are considered Misdemeanors by classification, Driving While Impaired (DWI) charges are extremely serious. The consequences of a conviction can include: jail, seizure of your car, suspension of driving privileges, probation, expensive fines, drastically increased car insurance premiums, and being required to use an interlock device on your vehicle.
DWI cases are also one of the most complex types of criminal cases that currently exist. It is not as simple as “What did you blow?” There are a number of hoops that the State has to jump through in order to prosecute someone for DWI. Along the way, many legal and constitutional issues can arise.
It is imperative that anyone who is charged with DWI seek to retain a highly skilled criminal defense attorney who can spot and articulately argue legal issues on your behalf.
